Description

It: Chapter Two—now a major motion picture!

Stephen King’s terrifying, classic #1 New York Times bestseller, “a landmark in American literature” (Chicago Sun-Times)—about seven adults who return to their hometown to confront a nightmare they had first stumbled on as teenagers…an evil without a name: It.

Welcome to Derry, Maine. It’s a small city, a place as hauntingly familiar as your own hometown. Only in Derry the haunting is real.

They were seven teenagers when they first stumbled upon the horror. Now they are grown-up men and women who have gone out into the big world to gain success and happiness. But the promise they made twenty-eight years ago calls them reunite in the same place where, as teenagers, they battled an evil creature that preyed on the city’s children. Now, children are being murdered again and their repressed memories of that terrifying summer return as they prepare to once again battle the monster lurking in Derry’s sewers.

Readers of Stephen King know that Derry, Maine, is a place with a deep, dark hold on the author. It reappears in many of his books, including Bag of Bones, Hearts in Atlantis, and 11/22/63. But it all starts with It.

“Stephen King’s most mature work” (St. Petersburg Times), “It will overwhelm you…to be read in a well-lit room only” (Los Angeles Times).

    He is such a good writer but he was proven mentally disabeled because of his gory mind so I’m just gonna say don’t press your luck and read any of this guys books if you have a fear of clowns ripping out your guts while you are sleeping or if you are just afraid of clowns. But overall I’m not afraid of clowns so I loved the book but I just have ethics a harsh rating to tell the people out there that are scared of clowns to not read tuis
  • Overall great book

    Just finished reading “It,” and holy guacamole. It’s terrifying, romantic at times, humorous and most of all captivating. It’s a complex, long read with random flashbacks and with multiple narrators that can cause confusion easily if you aren’t paying attention but it adds an element of reality and emotional connection that is both enchanting and challenging. The book really strings you along for a long “coming-of-age” story that is beautifully explained at the end and gives you what you want and need. Pennywise the clown is brilliant, terrifying and complacent. The concept of “It” shapeshifting to the characters deepest fears beyond the clown allows for the reader (us) to subconsciously think about our own deepest fears and how Pennywise may play on that. While that is not implicitly stated, it is my opinion and added that extra element of horror and connection to the characters and their plight. It is a long read and quite challenging, but it puts you right at the epicenter of the confusion of childhood, love and gives you a little taste of insanity. Definitely recommend the read and worth EVERY Penny(wise).

    I’ve never seen the movies, but I doubt they could hold a candle to this novel. Incredible, totally worth the investment of time reading It.

    Ok first off, great sample. I haven’t read the whole book but just the 361 page sample already has me hooked. If your parents don’t what you to read this it is understandable because there is A LOT of cussing and very homophonic comments. Along with a few murders and some cases of self harm and sucide (I don’t know how to spell it so sorry if it’s spelled wrong) If your parents do let you I personally think you’ll love this thriller. Also can we give a round of applause for Stephen King, the wonderful King of Horror. Thank you if you read this all 💭❤❤💭❤❤💭 ❤💚💛❤💛💚❤ ❤💜💛💙💛💜❤ 💭❤💜💛💜❤💭 💭💭❤💚❤💭💭 💭💭💭❤💭💭💭 we love Stephen King!!!! Also, I’m only 13 and probably shouldn’t have read this but whateva 🙃
